Starting April 20th, 2018, Bermuda Heart Foundation’s CORE Center will be offering cardiology services for zero copay for those with major medical coverage.
“As the island’s leading agency for heart health advocacy, it’s our moral duty to do whatever we can to ensure that cardiac patients don’t fall victim to the ever-increasing cost of healthcare,” said Dr Marion Watlington, founding board member of the Bermuda Heart Foundation.
“Financial hardship should never impede anyone’s access to cardiac care, and no one should ever be forced to choose between paying their grocery bills or attending to their health needs.
“This initiative falls in line with the Bermuda Heart Foundation’s mission to be a resource for those who need our help.”
The CORE Center’s visiting cardiac specialists will be on island twice per month to ensure easy access, as patients will always be seen by the same Cardiologist. These appointments will be available by physician’s referral, marking the first time that such services will be offered outside the hospital at no pocket cost to the patient.
CORE’s two top cardiologists are from New York – Presbyterian Hospital – the number one hospital in New York and on the East Coast for cardiology and surgical services as ranked by US News & World Report Best Hospital listings.
